Well, he did shoot a 2-over 74 today at Bay Hill, but he's still got a 1 shot lead heading into the final round...

Very soon my Mac setup will be changing. It'll be a while, though, b/c I still need to go purchase some lights and wires and some new attachments for my Dremel.

Here's a pic of my naked PowerMac I took yesterday. BTW, that white LED is bright as hell without the button to mask it!! I had to stand up a book in front of it last night so I could get some sleep!

Here is my untidy setup. I used to have a cool setup before I got this G4, loosing the Powermac also meant loosing the scanner, video card, and sampler...of course I wouldn't swap back .

I might as well show off my video collection now.

I couldn't agree more, still it's reasonably early days for dvd yet, my videos have a few more years. I have started collecting DVDs now though.
I can't wait to be able to record on to a DVD from your TV <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

Yeah I'm still alive fortunately, although I haven't been in the best state. I've been upset by a lot of things, especially since Kent State lost last night. Damn, that would've been sweet to have them playing in Atlanta. Still Elite Eight is awesome. Too bad I don't have anybody to cheer for now. My teams always lose, and the teams I hate win. Also other sh*t but oh well.

Anywayz I need to get a digital camera still and Im waiting for a few things Ive ordered to come . Hopefully I will finally be able to show all my Macs soon. I'll be adding on too.

You need to use an allen wrench to remove the hex screws. The handles home off without a hitch. The sides, however, are latched on in the center of the Apple. So, you actually have to completely remove the motherboard, fan, and all to pop the apple out. It's a painful process. I sanded down the inside of the Apple so it would pop off easier in the future without having to remove everything inside.

The question is...why, starfleetx, why? for the love of God, that's UGLY!!

Perhaps I missed a thread about what you are doing...can you give me a link?

Why?

Spock asked a similar question of Jim Kirk as to why he was climbing Yosemite Park's El Capitan mountain.

"Because it's there."

Classic. :cool:

Besides, that's not the finished product. My little project has been stalled for time restraints, but I'm determined to get the parts I need to finish everything within the next week.

I use OS 9 as my primary OS primarily because there are still no drivers for my HP Scanjet 5370 and no OS X version of Quark XPress. ( I could finally use it in classic though.. thanks to the modern magic of USB dongles)

I've had the ACD for about a week but my CPU was delayed. I got tired of waiting for the mythical G5...

ok guys,
\tMy GOD, how many of you people actually live in the 'clean-rooms' i see in your pictures? Don't you read <a href="http://www.slashdot.org" target="_blank">slashdot</a>? "A cluttered desk is a sign of productivity"... anyway.

Here is my desk:
The computer is currently a G4/400, 512MB RAM, 60GB + 20GB 7200rpm Maxtor HD's, internal Toshiba M-1212 DVD-ROM, 6MB VRAM, ATI XclaimVR 128, Orange Micro FireWire/USB PCI card. On top of the computer you can see my AIWA stereo, with the DSL modem on top of that, with the LaCie (Yamaha) 6x4x16 SCSI CD-RW, with an Asanté 10/100 8-port Ethernet hub on top of that. My 3GB VST Firewire HD is the blue thing above the floppy drive, and there is also an Iomega ZIP 100 SCSI drive to the left of the stereo that you cannot see here, plus the Wacom Intuos 2 6x8 USB tablet to the right of the computer, sandwiched next to the UMAX Astra 1200S sacnner. I should also mention the MacAlly iShock USB gamepad, Kensington USB Orbit Trackball and SanDisk CompactFlash Card Reader.
The desk was free, you can see how it sags under the weight of the two 17" Apple monitors which were also free. The HP DeskJet 870Cse on top helps hold things down... Beneath the desk to the right I have a PowerBook 520 running as a router for the DSL connection, as well as serving as a decent firewall. There are cables which nearly encompass the entire room, from the other left channel speaker (not pictured) to the RCA video cable running from the Xclaim to the TV behind my chair (good for games and DVD's!) also not pictured.

I encourage you all to post pics of your super-messy desks too.

There were just a bunch of family pictures and stuff I didn't figure were as important as my computer stuff. I live in Maryland, so there is no particular reason for the midwest theme, it just kinda happened.
And for those of you who care, the pics you see are actually being hosted off the beige G3 in the picture. I've got the whole house networked via cat-5 ethernet, a G4/350 (AGP) in the next room, and upstairs is an old 6100/60. I also have about 6 Mac plus/SE/classics that I scrap for parts... so many macs... Anyone interested in buying a Macintosh SE in it's original box? (used of course) 1MB RAM!!!!

</strong><hr></blockquote>False! A cluttered (and dirty) desk is a sign of messiness and (very) poor organizational skills!

Thumbs up to those of us who prefer organized, neat (and clean) offices in our homes. You will never see a messy desk or exposed batch of wires in my house.

I am afraid to see what some of your bathrooms look like! j/k.

There are only two, by necessity, cords coming from my comp desk. A phone line and a power cord . Both hooked up to surge protector, of course (hidden in the closet.) All of the rest of the wires are tucked nicely away...then again I do have an iMac so there aren't many to go around, mouse cord is threaded through flip out foot to eliminate excess cord length, and keyboard cord is bundled up underneath the iMac, Zip USB cord is only visible right behind the drive. I love a clean desk .

post #229 of 725
Here's my new setup. I'm experimenting with stands to lift the Powerbook G3 to eye-height and get more space on the desk.

Equipment is:

Powerbook G3/400 (Pismo) with 192 MB RAM, OS X 10.1.3

LaCie Firewire CDRW, LaCie USB 10GB external HD

Original Apple USB Keyboard from a G4, Logitech Cordless Trackman Wheel trackball.

Kyocera Smartphone with PalmOS 3.5.1

Sony MDR-7506 headphones (awesome)

Home built headphone amp (Dual Burr Brown op-amps, Noble pot, AudioQuest Diamondback interconnects )

AMC CD8b audiophile-grade CD player (Dual Burr Brown DACs, 96Khz/24 bit processing, fast Sony transport).

Hey Robo........haven't seen you for a while. How's it going?

Can't believe you are still with the Pismo

By the way. How is OS X running on a Pismo? Decent?

Hey Leonis. Yeah, i've been neglecting AI a bit recently.. I've been busy with grad school auditions, but they're over now.. I got a letter from Rice University yesterday - full tuition scholarship! I can breathe again Also, an assistantship with Wisconsin/Madison, though Rice is a better school so i think i'll turn down the assistantship (it pays $$, but i think it would be more valuable to go to Rice).

Anyway, yeah, i still have the Pismo. OS X runs ok, actually, even with what little RAM i have. I wish i could get a TiBook, but i can't really justify the cost right now. I still have to pay for living expenses next year in Houston (if i do end up going there, which seems likely at this point), and since i won't have any gigging connections in a new city, i don't know how much money i'll be making.

Cheers,

robo

I have pictures, but not the time to post them to my iDisk. Instead, here is a QTVR I made up.

I won't even try to name everything I have, but if anyone wants to know what something is, I'll answer.
